The Lyrics

In the words of Linkin Park, "I'm breaking the habit tonight!"
Priory's full of postulants, see.
Kneeling to greatness.
And wondering purpose.
I'm clothed and covered in black negligee.
When time for confession,
Our 'order' can break loose...

Taught by the convent, yo,
Just taught by the convent, yo.
A big step is to take, the veil. Mother's awaiting you...
Postulant converts, yo.
We're postulant converts, yo.

I've become a nun!
Love to kneel, oh yeah!
A Carmelite!
So much holy prayer!
I'm a canoness!
Got a cornet, too!
See me on my knees!
An abbess, it's true!

Penguins live in this monastery,
Dancing benguine-ly,
And praying through the halls.
So ursuline, I'm one hot votary.
Just rolling with God,
Why, that's what nuns do!

Taught by the convent, yo,
Just taught by the convent, yo.
Every chap that I date seems quite bothered I'm chaste and scoots.
Postulant converts, yo.
We're postulant converts, yo.
I have a black 'n' white taste,
And love my nightly pray-ing!

I've become a nun!
Love to kneel, oh yeah!
A Neophyte!
So much holy prayer!
Got a nunning dress!
Guimpe and wimple, too!
See me on my knees!
I confess by pew!

And although,
Some say I'm one kneeling fool.
Well, I've shown,
For a place that's free and comfy, this here cloister is cool!

I've become a nun!
Love to kneel, oh yeah!
And nun's the wiser,
For holy prayer!
Skirt the IRS,
And all junk mail, too!
See me on my knees!
My address is gew!

I've become a nuuun!
(Priory's full of postulants, see.)
I've become a nuuun!
(Priory's full of postulancy.)

This has sparked some vague memory of a show 'Avenger Penguins' that I used to love back in primary school. ...tee hee, penguins is funny...

I don't get this parody, but that's probably because I don't know anything about nuns. I loved your pacing/rhyming and your stretching of certain words, so 544

(ABC05) DKTOS, but I get a distinct impression that that "I've become a nun" line is probably off pace (sorry if I'm wrong.) But a funny, unlikely concept...with a good use of terminology.

(ABC05) That line scans perfectly with TOS' line "I've become so numb", but that is all I remember from TOS and downloaded lyrics are styled quite differently than this. I'm woefully unfamiliar with nuns, except a few jokes. Imagining LP singing this is pretty funny though.

(ABC05) DKTOS, but it reads well.

DKOS, but I admired this

(ABC) "Postulant" is such a cool word.

(N) again DKTOS, but "nun's the wiser" is a nice get, Luke - 555
Rick C - September 25, 2005 - Report this comment
(ABC05) Well written. Do you know why nuns usually travel in pairs? One nun makes sure the other nun doesn't get none. (Groan). 555

(ABC05) DKTOS, but the lyrics alone were enjoyable.

(ABC) Not a linkin park fan, but this sent me all ecclesiastical! 555

This is a great song, but *gasps* blasphomy! OMGLOLBBQ! YOU MUST REPENT FOR YOUR 5's! joking

You screwed up a bit in the song... Nun's are Virgin- they won't date. Research your junk before your parody it. Besides that, not bad.
